This chapter examines the relationship between interpreters/transliterators and the deaf community and the forces that altered that relationship. Topics discussed include the roots of the practice of sign language interpreting/transliterating in the deaf community, events that altered the social and cultural positionality of interpreters/transliterators as a group, legislative institutionalization of interpretation and transliteration, and academic institutionalization of the language of the Community.
